Love After Lockup Season 1 cast members Andrea Edwards and Lamar Jackson returned to reality TV for the inaugural season of Life After Lockup. They’re one of the few pairs from the show that are actually still together, but just like the other cast members, they do have their fair share of drama.
To put it simply, Andrea and Lamar are the epitome of “opposites attract.” She is a proud church-going mother of three from Utah. Meanwhile, Lamar was fresh out of a California jail. The couple recently spoke to Reality Tea for an exclusive interview.
On the Real Housewives of New York reunion, Dorinda Medley compared Barbara Kavovit to a turnip in a fruit basket. Aside from the time Dorinda kicked Barbara out of their apartment, the two of them never truly went at it during the season.
At the start, Barbara disinvited Dorinda from her clambake, which was a total mistake. Barbara could have blessed us all with another epic scene of Dorinda angrily slurring. Instead, Barbara just fell flat this season. For the most part, she did nothing terribly wrong. Yes, she had another hot mic moment aimed at Luann de Lesseps, but as Luann said herself, Lu is no Adele.
When Danielle Staub rejoined Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dolores Catania saw right through her bullshit. On the other hand, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, and Teresa Giudice were feeding into it. Hell, they were all bridesmaids in her televised wedding.
Now, Teresa and Danielle are on the outs, but it’s unclear what exactly went down. They’re not following each other on Instagram, making their rift social media official. Last season, the RHONJ ladies were sick of Danielle’s antics, but she managed to charm Teresa with that “best friends” necklace and kissing her ass whenever possible. Now, Danielle is really on the outs and Melissa has something to do with that.
Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd were enemies right from the jump. Kelly referred to Shannon’s beloved USC as the University of Spoiled Children and she was immediately on Shannon’s bad side.
It got ugly from there with plates thrown and Mrs. Roper comparisons. Then, the two of them bonded when they split from their husbands and they’ve provided fun TV (and Instagram Stories) ever since. Well, actually those Instagram Stories stopped and that’s because they’re currently on the outs.
When June Foster joined the cast of Below Deck Mediterranean this season, the only person who was at-all excited about it was Colin Macy-O’Toole. He was elated to have another American on the Sirocco and he hoped she wasn’t into the dirty sex talk like his coworkers.
Who was the least excited about June joining the crew? It has to be a tie between Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier and June herself. Hannah was miffed to lose Anastasia Surmava, who was the only competent Third Stew Hannah ever worked with on this show. June just didn’t seem enthusiastic in general. About anything. What was going on there? Was she high during charter?
Even though all of the full-time Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members are on the outs with Lisa Vanderpump, the end of her relationship with Kyle Richards stings the most. They were the two remaining OG cast members. Now, Kyle is the sole original remaining (as a full-time cast member, anyway), with Erika Jayne crowning her as the “queen” of the cast during the Season 9 reunion.
Many fans (adamantly) took sides in the Lisa vs. Kyle feud. Meanwhile, others wanted them to get back to the fun times they use to have
teaming up against other cast members. Reunion host and Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen is rooting for a reconciliation and he thinks he know what it will take for them to get back on good terms.
When Austen Kroll joined Southern Charm, he was deemed the “New Shep Rose” and touted as the golden boy of the show, which are, clearly, two very contradicting descriptions. Nevertheless, Austen shed that golden boy persona last season when ex-girlfriend Chelsea Meissner claimed that she was his short-lived sugar mama, picking up the tab on dates.
This season has revolved around Austen’s relationship drama with
Shep Madison LeCroy. It started with that infamous video where Madison caught Austen with two women, while they were dating. Now, this season seems to revolve around their ups and downs. No one can say that Austen isn’t bringing it this year. However, the same cannot be said about some of his co-stars. There are plenty of people on this show who aren’t pulling their weight, just getting by commenting on other people’s storylines. Now, Austen is calling them out. Or at least he plans to at the reunion.
